June Book Club Gathering
June 26, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Save the date for Greenbelt’s Conservation Book Club summer gathering! The June read is The Nature Fix: Why Nature Makes Us Happier by Florence Williams
“Imagine a miracle drug that could ease many of the stresses of modern life — a combination of mood enhancer and a smart pill that might even encourage the remission of cancer. Now imagine that this cure-all was an old-fashioned folk remedy: Just take a hike in the woods or a walk in the park. No prescription necessary.
That’s the proposition of Florence Williams’s fascinating ‘The Nature Fix: Why Nature Makes Us Happier, Healthier, and More Creative.’ We suffer from an ‘epidemic dislocation from the outdoors,’ Williams writes, and it’s destructive to our mental and physical health. The therapy is straightforward. ‘The more nature, the better you feel.'” (The New York Times)
The June gathering will be held outdoors at the Bald Hill Farm farmhouse.
Book Club Synopsis:
The Greenbelt Conservation Book Club is an inclusive and informal group that meets quarterly to discuss a range of local to worldwide conservation issues. Our goal is to expand our learning and knowledge based on our readings and each other through thoughts, personal experiences, and good conversations. Participation is free and open to all. Books are chosen by group consensus and each quarterly gathering will take place voluntarily at a host’s home. Join us!
